Zeeuws Museum

Accompanying material for an exhibition about the acclaimed folk artist Jan de Prentenknipper (1798 -1870) at Zeeuws Museum in The Netherlands

The exhibition takes place over three galleries at the museum in Middleburg and Masha’s work accompanies the work of the nineteenth-century artist, using mdf cutouts displayed on tables, walls, and hung from the ceiling of the galleries

One of two animations created for the exhibition

To supplement his meagre income as a travelling labourer, Jan de Prentenknipp sold his cutout prints often in exchange for a place to sleep.

His ‘cutouts’ take the form of chiselled images on paper, painted with watercolours and sometimes handwritten texts. His work, which has been preserved in the collections of national institutions and private collections, provides a unique view of the nineteenth-century Zeeland world
